Allows reporting tickets with a different username


Since 0.10, you have been unable to use a different name for the Reporter field when entering tickets. This plugin allows that ability again. Beware that this does no checking on the username given (which is part of the reason this feature was removed from Trac itself).

Make sure the user entering the ticket has the TICKET_FAKE_USERNAME permission (or TICKET_ADMIN).
